WWE 2K23‘s Showcase is quite different because instead of succeeding as the cover star, we’re defeating him. Throughout this mode, we go through John Cena’s losses to get all of the Showcase unlockables and rewards in WWE 2K23. 

From a playable Kurt Angle to the ECW One Night Stand arena, here’s everything you’ll unlock from the Showcase in WWE 2K23. Hopefully, you can see John Cena while fighting him.

There are 17 matches you’ll need to finish to collect all of the Showcase unlockables in WWE 2K23To acquire them, you’ll need to finish all of the objectives the game sets out. For example, during the Rob Van Dam match, the game will tell you to Irish Whip John Cena out of the ring. To do that, you have to choose a direction and then hold the circle button (B on Xbox). Regardless, here are all of the unlockable wrestlers, rings, and other collectibles in WWE 2K23‘s Showcase mode. You may want to tweak your PC setup to make sure the Showcase matches run well.
